Westboro Baptist Church to picket Dio Service

Seems like the Westboro Baptist Church are to picket the Ronnie James Dio Memorial Service on Sunday May 30th:

Bad form or what? They are entitled to their opinion I suppose but to me it's disrespectful and will surely cause distress to family and friends at the service.

Dude!! That is awesome...That sh!t cracks me up!!! It is very disrespectful, but it's coming from a bunch of @$$holes, what'd you expect?

What higher form of compliment does one need?

He who dabbled in such a free art form, and certainly never did any physical harm to anyone (that we know of) , He lived a fantastic life of a modern day pirate/bard/wandering minstrel... I bet he'd be happy knowing this!

The bottom line is he's dead, nothing's bothering him now! I can't see this ruffling any of his feathers, and his family would have probably expected this anyway... I'm sure they are under no illusions in life, not after the last 35 years of his career...

R.I.P.

Those people are crazy. They are blinded by their own pride and sense of superiority and their LOVE of attention.

If heaven is full of Christians with that mentality, I'll join Ronnie in hell thanks.

They have shown up here in Gainesville. No one is particularly happy about it. Some of the local churches have protested them.

Jeez it's pathetic. Just goes to show you that fundamentalists are probably more evil than most people. Religion of all forms preaches tolerance, something that fundamentalists of any denomination choose to ignore.

They came here to Birmingham week before last. We had a huge peace rally to protest them. Turned out great.

I really think Dio would feel honored that he was able to tweak some idiots like that. He would laugh and give them the devil sigh.
